THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
September 19, 2014  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

Part 6. Tonight’s installment of The Roosevelts treads on some familiar ground – World War II, which Ken Burns and company already have chronicled so effectively and evocatively. But here, the date that will live in infamy is given an even more personal perspective, as we learn how President Franklin Roosevelt, as well as First lady Eleanor, dealt privately with the very public pressures of a global war. For my full review, see Bianculli’s Blog. And to hear my review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, which includes audio samples from several episodes, visit the Fresh Air website.
